When Adi Badenhorst's family bought the Kalmoesfontein farm there was wild mustard and some vines planted in the 1960s. The beauty of this grape and this release by Badenhorst is something other, stretching up to the ethereal and to a great extent pretty much unknown, even for many of those who love and pursue wine. This vintage adds some richness so there is an almost starchy and gelid red berry profile in a cinsault quite easy to enjoy. Changing vintages and unknown factors going forward will bring complexities and see this sku only getting better. The '21 is quite light, of fruit purity and airiness yet with notable tannin to activate a rise after the initial and thankful ease of extraction. Two years in bottle should only act to improve the situation and pleasure. Drink 2024-2029. Tasted October 2022.Β
